Building For Our Future
Driving by the church you will notice construction activity on the property. We are in the "fill and grade" stage of building a new church building as our congregation is growing. Upon completion our new church will have a seating capacity of about 250, compared to the 140 in our current building. The "new church" will also contain the church offices, classrooms and fellowship space for coffee and treats on Sunday morning.
Our current church building will be repurposed to serve as a true "multipurpose" facility with upgrades to the kitchen along with an additional space being added to offer more seating for dinners and other large events. We also plan to make this space available for community and government meetings.

Christ Crucified For Our Sins
Jesus gave His church the mission of preaching repentance and forgiveness of sins in His name to all nations. (Luke 24:47).
Communicating is central to the work of the church, and in our modern era the internet can be a very powerful tool in enhancing our ability to communicate. We hope this website will be useful to you in sharing what we believe, how we go about communicating the message of God’s grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ to our community, and how we can help each other grow in that knowledge and apply what we know to our lives here, and our hope for the future. We pray this website will serve as an invitation for you to join us in worship, fellowship and ministry.
